Events usually occur twice a year around April and September. Each event stands alone, with running themes being propagated from one to the next. Participants may adopt different characters at each event with only the fictional setting and game format remaining the same. This allows for players to vary their experiences and miss events without penalty.

Typically What Are the Facilities Like at your Game Sites?  The regular site is woodland with a covered ‘out of game’ area. Facilities include a site shop, toilets and lunch options if required.

Criminal Contact is a unique open world roleplay event based around a functioning economy, where characters supply and demand various items for players to trade, transport, smuggle or steal. While players may ‘unlock’ airsoft firearms to use at these events, it is important to note that firefights have consequences! In short, this is NOT a regular airsoft skirmish disguised with a theme.

Describe Your Game Genre: High Fantasy, but we also sometimes run low fantasy or horror events.

Who Creates Characters: A Combination of Both

How Much Plot is Tailored to individual Characters?: It Varies

How Long Has the Group Been Running For?:
Over 10 years – we had an initial run which was a 10 year campaign in our high fantasy campaign world of Tempress. After a hiatus we came up with low fantasy and horror events. Campaigning in Tempress has just restarted. This new game is set 10 years after the end of the initial campaign

What Makes Your Events Friendly to New Players?:
The referees and world gms do their best to give players background information and include them in plot. Although games are built as part of an ongoing campaign and continuity each event is self contained. So that you don’t need a lot of lore to participate. Role Playing and improvisation is encouraged

How Frequently do you run events and for a players what is the commitment level to attend all events like?:
No commitment to attend all events. Normally we run around 2-4 events year.

Typically What Are the Facilities Like at your Game Sites?:

Facilities are very good. Our games are catered for most meals – the extent of catering  is made clear for each event. We always look for locations with good sleeping facilities. This normally means bunk rooms. And also bathrooms and showers. Most of the sites we play at also have disabled access.

Finally Tell us anything else you would like to about Your Game World, and How Your Events Work:
The majority of games are based in the campaign world of Tempress. This is a high fantasy world with player generated politics

We also run a low fantasy setting based roughly on Dark Ages England at the time of the Viking Raids

On occasion we run horror orientated events.

Who Creates Characters: The Player

How Much Plot is Tailored to individual Characters?: A Lot

How Long Has the Group Been Running For?: We started recently, in 2015, however the Ref team have decades of experience of writing successful and popular larp events.

What Makes Your Events Friendly to New Players?:

We are a low fuss game, player can turn up with a t shirt and jeans and still fit in with the game world. Our goals are to make a low cost player focused event, however, we are constantly building on the props and set dressing to make a world which people can not only get totally immersed in, but also help change!

How Frequently do you run events and for a players what is the commitment level to attend all events like?:

Each year we have one main gathering event, which represents the coming together of all survivors to trade, chat and make plans. From 2017 we have additional high-risk adventure events which will help drive the story forward.
In 2015 we had 40 players, in 2016 we have 50 and hopefully this will increase further over the next few years!

Typically What Are the Facilities Like at your Game Sites?: The events are 24 hour time in, self catered camping. There are showers and toilets available for all players. We welcome non-combatants.

Finally Tell us anything else you would like to about Your Game World, and How Your Events Work:

The world has changed. Two and a half years ago, technology failed, society collapsed and millions starved. Many of the survivors of the rioting and unforgiving first winter then fell to a virus, an unnatural disease that kept the body alive but destroyed the mind. Those few who remained began to fight over the few remaining resources.

However, there are some shining beacons of humanity scattered across the country. Places where simply waking up is not punctuated by the screams of the dying, either at the hands of Raiders, Shamblers, or something worse. Safety from the disease, starvation and jealousy. Such places are few, but as the world becomes more dangerous, we look to rebuild.

Come, take your place by the fire, share your story and live to fight another day.
